Steve Kerr 'playing with house money' in World Series bet with Steph Curry

Steve Kerr is a big Dodgers fan.

Steph Curry is a big Red Sox fan.

The Red Sox will host the Dodgers on Tuesday night in Game 1 of the World Series, and Warriors coach and star player do have a bet on the outcome, as The Athletic's Anthony Slater chronicled:

Work logistics won’t allow them to attend in person. But both will be locked in from afar, already trading some trash talk, agreeing on a wager — “Can’t reveal the stakes,” Kerr said

Kerr spoke with Damon Bruce on 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and once again declined to share specifics of the agreement between he and Curry.

Golden State's head coach did, however, reveal that he is "playing with some house money" because he won a bet with Kevon Looney based on the result of the NLCS.

Looney grew up in Milwaukee, and the Dodgers beat the Brewers in seven games to advance to the Fall Classic.

Note to all San Francisco Giants fans out there -- don't be mad at Kerr for his allegiance to the Dodgers. The guy grew up in Southern California and loves baseball. End of story.

Besides, as he told Bruce -- the Warriors have won three NBA championships over the last four years, so he's doing something right ...

Steph Curry sneaks in odd phrases at All-Star Weekend for Jimmy Fallon

Steph Curry sneaks in odd phrases at All-Star Weekend for Jimmy Fallon

Steph Curry is a pretty good sport.

Before the Warriors star took off to NBA All-Star Weekend, Late Night host Jimmy Fallon asked Curry to sneak a few phrases into his media interviews throughout the weekend.

Fallon revealed the bit during Monday night's episode of "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon."

Curry snuck in the phrases "energizer bunny," "flippin' pancakes," and "Wham Bam Can of Ham" two times each, and nobody appeared to notice. 

Steph appeared to enjoy his experience with it all.

"Energizer bunny" and "flippin' pancakes" seemed pretty easy for the two-time MVP to mix into his interviews, but "Wham Bam Can of Ham?" What even is that?

Fallon himself had high praise for the three-time champ for agreeing to participate.
